Chateau de Mazan
4 stars - based on 2 reviews
French Riviera & Provence, France
Number of Rooms: 30
Hotel Type: Manor House
Prices: from 125.00 EUR to 450.00 EUR
The Marquis de Sade’s family estate – the Château de Mazan’s guests and clientele have softened with time, perhaps something to do with that relaxing and sensual southern sun. A stay in what is now a carefully restored and very beautiful hotel is a calming and indulgent treat.
Surrounded by acres of gardens, a pool built out of the local stone and views across to Mont Ventoux, the Lhermie family know how to mix a little history with a relaxed coolness and hints of a classical elegance. In the rooms wooden beams blend with terra cotta floor tiles, the odd chaise longue, elegant and refined bathroom furniture. Nothing is over the top here, however, and the style is far from forced, emanating from an effortless approach not just to what looks good but, perhaps more importantly, what feels good.
Good taste abounds and in fact, the cuisine too is definitely worth trying – make a mental note that the restaurant closes Tuesdays (Mondays too in Low Season) so do try and ensure your visit spans some of the other days of the week in order to take advantage of the wonderful cooking. A family-run hotel with 30 rooms, the Château de Mazan is in a quiet and beautiful corner of Provence with a friendly and relaxed welcome.
A very good choice for two or three days if you are heading off somewhere else or indeed use it as a base and stay for a week, taking advantage of its great location in relation to Avignon, Nîmes and the Luberon.
Chateau de Mazan Reviews
Quirky but Charming
Everything about this hotel is different and unexpected in the middle of an ordinary French village which has its own particular charm. We enjoyed only breakfast which was really good and consisted of fresh breads, croissants, yoghurts, fruits, jams, etc. if you want to eat in their gourmet restaurant make sure to book in advance of your stay or you won't get a table! We ate in 3 different restaurants in the village all of which were surprisingly good. The rooms are quite small and not equipped with many plugs for the mobile phone, laptops etc. and the wifi, though free and throughout the hotel is very slow. The bed is very comfortable and we had a little terrace looking out onto a small pool. It was extremely quiet and peaceful and the staff were very helpful. There is a private car park which is very handy adjoining the hotel.by Daphne

Hotel con encanto
El hotel tiene mucho encanto y es un lugar ideal para descansar. Nosotros fuimos con niños y nos alojamos en una casa que se encuentra en frente del hotel muy cómoda para ir en familia y podíamos ir a desayunar, comer y cenar al hotel y hacer uso de la piscina.
El personal correcto, pero para orientarnos sobre excursiones y actividades en la zona no daban mucha información, mejor ir a la oficina de turismo de Mazan, el pueblo donde se encuentra.
Mazan es un pueblo bastante pequeño, así que si se quiere hacer alguna actividad nocturna o tener variedad de restaurantes se debe ir a algún pueblo cercano, allí no hay mucha variedad.
